The Children’s Trust Miami Heart Gallery features New Portraits of Foster Children

From Jun 8th through Jul 2nd, 2010.

altThe Children’s Trust Miami Heart Gallery is a traveling museum-quality exhibit featuring portraits of children in Miami-Dade’s foster care system who are available for adoption. The Art Deco theme of this year’s exhibit is inspired by Miami Beach’s historic Art Deco district where all 44 portraits were photographed. Now in its third year, the exhibit has a nearly 50-percent adoption rate.

The Children’s Trust Miami Heart Gallery is a partnership between The Children’s Trust and Our Kids, the private agency responsible for foster care and adoption in Miami-Dade County and the Florida Keys. According to the state of Florida, more than 1,500 foster children are eligible for adoption in Florida and approximately 150 of them live in Miami-Dade. These children have been removed from their biological parents for reasons of abuse or neglect with no possibility of family reunification.

The exhibition takes place at the HistoryMiami (Formerly Historical Museum of Southern Florida) from June 8th through July 2nd, 2010 and it is open to the public Tuesday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. / Saturday and Sunday, from noon to 5:00 p.m.
